A multi-sensory experience, the award winning Songs Of The Sea is a show that visitors to Sentosa are encouraged to catch. Using lights, lasers, fire, water, music, singing, and dancing by a live 7 member cast, Songs Of The Sea is both engaging and immersive, even though the show itself is rather short at 20 - 25 minutes.

Started as a replacement to the iconic former Sentosa Musical Fountain, Songs Of The Sea is a twice daily show, playing at 7.40pm and 8.40pm, rain or shine. Designed by Yves Pépin, a famed multimedia show designer, Songs Of The Sea is the world's only permanent show set in the sea.

Songs Of The Sea tells the story of Li and his 6 friends. Dressed in a white shirt and brown pants, Li and his friends visit a beach, and sing several ethnic songs representing the 4 main languages of Singapore. While singing, they are surprised by an image of a beautiful sleeping girl, Princess Ami, who has fallen under the spell of an enchanted village. Li and his friends then meet several mischievous sea creatues, including Oscar, a Common Lionfish / Tigerfish / Pterois Miles, who befriend them and urge Li to sing to break the spell over Princess Ami. Li, Oscar, and their friends also encounter and free the Lord Of Fire, the Spirit Of Light, and the Lady Of The Sea.

While the dancing is acceptable, the lip-syncing of the 7-member cast is often critised. The story, while humourous, is also rather dis-jointed, and makes little sense. However, Songs Of The Sea does redeem itself through the use of technology, with pyrotechnics, water jets, and lasers accompanying the songs and music, making for a mesmerising visual and audio spectacle. In Songs Of The Sea, the human cast are the weakest link.

If you're planning a visit to Songs Of The Sea, do note the 2 daily show timings of 7.40pm and 8.40pm. Admission fees for a standard ticket is SGD $12, but you are advised to purchase the premium ticket at SGD $15 for a better view. The 2500 seats fill up fast, and seating opens up to 40 minutes before the show begins. If you want a good seat, you are strongly advised to reach at least 20 minutes before the show begins to choose a seat.
